Summary

Summary

Yellow Series: This historical survey describes European painting's Baroque era, which extended approximately from the 1680s through the mid-1700s. The style was highly ornate and detailed, with emphasis on dramatic gestures and scenes, most often having historical, mythological, or religious themes. Summarized and shown here are works of major Baroque painters, who included Tiepolo, Chardin, and Fragonard, among many others.
